April 2017, Two Russian Pranksters Punk’d Rep. Adam Schiff

While many online is pushing this as an “exclusive”, the audio was actually posted April 12, 2017. It’s still an interesting conversation considering what we now know about the year-plus investigation into “Russian collusion”, Christopher Steele, Fusion GPS and the Hillary for President campaign, partisan FBI agents and high-ranking officials, the FISA warrants, and Congressman Adam Schiff….

On April 10, 2017, an assistant to Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Donald Trump’s campaign for possible collusion with the Kremlin, patched in a long-planned call from Andriy Parubiy, the speaker of the Rada, the Ukrainian parliament. Parubiy said he had some potentially explosive information about Trump’s visit to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant in 2013.

It wasn’t Parubiy who’d called. It was Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, two Russian pranksters known as Vovan and Lexus. There was no kompromat, no meetings between Flynn and a Russian pop star in Brighton Beach. The call made the Americans look gullible, which suited the callers. Kuznetsov and Stolyarov immediately sent the recording to Kremlin-friendly media, which gleefully made hay of it: another dumb American, ready to believe the most-ludicrous stories about a Russia run by sneaky, evil spies.

So much for “house intelligence”.
